A glimpse into Arizona flowering Cactus. This is from my parents back garden, it's a huge Cactus with three blooms on it. Last year they had around 150 blooms. The Cactus is a night bloomer and only blooms once and the bloom dies. I was lucky to catch this bloom before it closed this morning. It's already starting to close, this picture shows it about half way. Really a beautiful sight for such a prickly plant.
